Full Description


Aldous Huxley Annual is the new official organ of the Aldous Huxley Society and the Centre for Aldous Huxley Studies. It publishes larger essays on the life, times, and interests of Aldous Huxley and his circle. It aspires to be the sort of periodical that Huxley would have wanted to read and to which he might have contributed. The international Aldous Huxley Society (AHS), founded in Munster on 25 June 1998, has two chief purposes: to promote the academic study of the works of Aldous Huxley, in particular critical editions, commentaries and interpretations, and to make a wider public acquainted with the thought and writings of the author. Furthermore, the Society supports the Centre for Aldous Huxley Studies (CAHS) at the Department of English at the Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat Munster, and undertakes to organize academic meetings, further academic work of its members within the scope of its authority and possibility, cooperate with other societies devoted to the academic study of the works of Aldous Huxley and send delegates to international conferences.
